things at their annual meeting last
Tuesday evening. Supper was served
by the ladies of tho church ntG:30, after
which the church roll was called. Col.
S. A. Ilsley was the first to respond.
He spoke of the gratitude he felt to be
privileged to meet with the church and
closed his remarks with an impressive
statement of his interest in church
work. Col. Ilsley has been prevented
by illness from attending business meet
ings of the church for eight months and
the audience greeted him heartily and
applauded his remarks. Resident mem
bers from Brooksville emphaBized the
importance of the church work that has
been carried on in their community re
cently, made possible through the gen
erosity of Col. Ilsley and the zeal of
At the business meeting Rev. Roy E.

to undertake the duties of his oflice as
he is a student of Bible school methods

The Y. M. C. A. and Boy Scouts of
Middlebury are planning to hold their
annual New Year's hike the same as
for the past four or five years, only
with a change of destination which will
be Cliapman's Mills instead of Cobble
hill as formerly. This hike has been a
great event for the last few years and
promises to be even more so this year
than ever before, because of the advan
tages of this new assembling place over
the old, because here we are on land
owned by the Y. M. C. A. through the
kindness of Mr. Chapman, whom we
wish to thank again for his kind gif t.
Be sure to come and bring any of
your friends who like the joys of a day
with nature and remember that the
hike starts from the town hall at 8
shaip on the morning of January 1,

GOVERNOR ft.EAD'S GIFT TO
Donor of Coltege Chapel Makos
Gencrous Glft to His Home
At the Christmas servtce in the First
Congregational church of Rutland last
Sunday morning, the gift of ex-Gov-ernorJohnA.
Mead, Middlebury, '64,
of a piece of property near the church
to be used by the young people of Rut
lann as a community center was an
nounced. It is understood that Gov
ernor Mead has not only purchased the
property, but will erect a building with
club rooms, gymnasium, reading rooms
and parlors. There will also be pro
vision for outdoor sports, such as ten
nis. The building will include a dining
room, kitchen, and possibly an audi
torium. It is a condition of the gift that the
building be conducted for the benefit of
every boy and girl in Rutland, regard
less of creed or church connection.
The board administenng the house will
be no-nsectarian, but the property is
conveyed to the Congregational church
for permanent administrative control.
In an interview secured by the Rut
land JHerald, Governor Mead said con
cerning the gift:
"I believe that now is the right time
to do Bomething for the youth of Rut
land. The terrible unrest in Europe
which has resulted in the war is re
flected in a measure in our own coun
try, and the great need of the day is
education, not only education in book
lore, but in the physical development
and care of the bodies of our young
folks, to whom we must look for the
"There will be no restrictions on this
institution for social and recreative
good except that it shall be conducted
decently, lawfuly and liberally. I
should like to s e our young people
make it the h.-adquarters for their
amusements and recreations. I should
like to see them grow up strong, clean
and vigorous and take their part in
makitig our citizenship the equal of the
old Green Mountain stock, which hewed
homes from the wilderness, and not
only made this a great State but con
tributed to the greatness of the nation.
"It should be the purpose of its trus
tees to make tthe' institution so attrac
tive that the young folks will not be
tempted to find their amusement else
where, under conditions not so con
ducive to good morals, good citizenship
and honorable manhood and woman
hood. "I hope, also, that this will be but the
beginning, and that playgrounds, other
outdoor recreation and beneficial activ
ities of all kinds will follow."

UNDERTAKER AND FUNERAL DIRECTOR
East Middlebury alone. By afternoon
the elements had quieted down and, as
is often the case after such storms, the
damage was found to be less than had
been feared. Perhaps the churches
were the worst sufferers, very few ven
turingout during the morning.
FARMERS GET WORTIILESS
Fully thirty farmers have been de
frauded by Benjamin Goldberg, cattle
buyer of Burlington, who issued checks
amounting to about $1,500, for which
he had no funds.
The checks were drawn on the
Howard National Bank, Burlington.
Goldberg bought pork and poultry in
New Haven, Weybridge, Bridport,
Addison, and other towns, paying a
little more than the market price.
States Attorney Sturtevant has issued
a warrant, but as the man had a week's
start the prospect for his capture is
none too good. It has been found that
he drew his money from the bank before
his last buying trip.
